In college, as in all other aspects of
life, each event leads to the question
"WHAT IS riEXT m LiriE?" The year
1989 put this question in the minds of
many individuals at Louisburg College.
The decision to come to Louisburg Col-
lege, be it a student or faculty member,
began a line of events. Moving away
from home, leaving old friends and fam-
ily, establishing new relationships and
beginning higher education were the
first steps in the line of events. As the
year continued each person's choices
and decisions lead each through the
unique line of events. The question
"what is next in line? " also applied to
the Louisburg College campus. The year
brought about expansion of the physical
facilities with the opening of the new au-
Participation in sports and organiza-
tions provided students and faculty with
opportunities to progress along each
one's line of interest. A varied curriculm
was an open door leading to many desti-
nations. So, what is next in line for all

Dorm Life is not always just working
on homework, it sometimes involves
a little clowning around. The dorms
consists of everything from roasting
marshmellows, to hall slides. There
are many activities that go on in the
dorms that try to involve everyone. An
example is, Merritt dorms trick or

from the community to trick or treat in
the dorms. Students are able to fix
their rooms as they would like. This

these events were sponsored by the

The Comedy Club was co-sponsored
by Charlie Qoodnights from Raleigh.

Parents Day is the one opportunity for
parents to meet and talk witin the profes-

their parents what life at Louisburg Col-

able to meet the parents also. Upon ar-
rival, the parents were greeted in the
Clifton L. Benson Chapel with hot coffee,
light refreshments, and a warm Louis-
burg College welcome from the faculty
and staff. The parents were also invited
to lunch and afterwards had an opportu-

THE riEW BUILDinO
On January 12, 1989, Louisburg Col-
lege uncovered its four million dollar au-
ditorium and theatre. This buidling in-
cludes an auditorium which seats twelve
hundred and a theatre that seats one
hundred and eighty. The auditorium is
the effort of eight years of planning and
fundraising by the Louisburg College
Board of Trustees. From the success of
the auditorium opening, it is easy to see
how much the auditorium will be uti-
lized and how it is an enjoyable addition
to the College.

looks up and smiles for candid camera.
After an overwhelming re-
sponse expressed by students
this year, the Peace Group was
formed by Wade Vickrey. Its
main purpose is to educate the
college community about issues
concerning armed conflict and
its dehumanizing affects on peo-
ple. Also, the Peace Group
would focus on the brutality of
life in third and fourth world
countries and to emphasize hu-
man rights and issues both here
and abroad. Among the activi-
ties the Peace Group participat-
ed in this year are a food drive
for the needy, a paper recycling
drive, planting and decorating a
small pine tree in remember-
ance of Human Rights Day and
the Peace Group also sponsored
a debate on capital punishment.
On Campus Radio
next year WQLC will rock the
Lou-U Campus. Thanks to the SQA,
Louisburg College will once again
have an on-campus radio station.
The radio station is now located in
the multi-purpose room and is op-
erational at this time. Mike de
Vente, president of SQA hopes that
this radio station can be used for
both entertainment and education,
with possibilities of offering a
broadcast communications class.
It will definitely be a switch next
year as the new radio station gets
into action on campus.
Students who worked so
hard to revive WQLC are
Mike deVente, Randall Bow-
man, Happy Wade, Michelle
Burr and Gemard Batts.
